The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) continues to work with the owners and staff of Carbón Live Fire Mexican Grill at 300 W. 26th Street as part of our ongoing investigation into an outbreak of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC). To date, 50 residents have been identified as contracting STEC related to this outbreak. There have been 14 hospitalized. At this point there are no reports of hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). This location remains closed as does a second Carbón location at 810 Marshfield. CDPH continues to recommend that anyone who has eaten at Carbón and is suffering from symptoms to see a medical provider. Individuals may also contact CDPH directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
